A £10m plan to upgrade a main Huddersfield commuter road may be a step closer.
Plans are being developed to alter Halifax Road, from the town centre to Ainley Top roundabout.
Councillors on West Yorkshire’s Combined Authority will be asked to approve £202k to progress the plan.
As the Examiner reported last month, Halifax Road and Ainley Top changes being proposed are:
- Remove parking from both sides of Halifax Road from the Cavalry Arms to Birchencliffe Hill Road to enable free-flow of traffic and enable footways to be used safely.
- Extend the southern approach lane onto Ainley Top roundabout from the Yew Tree Road junction of Halifax Road.
- Consider an additional left slip onto Ainley Top roundabout from Halifax Road.
- Widen the junction of Blacker Road/Edgerton Grove Road/New North Road and Edgerton Road.
- Realignment of the Cavalry Arms junction.
On Thursday councillors will also be asked to give the go-ahead for £2.2m to be spent on another phase of the Huddersfield-Halifax corridor improvements. It will fully-cost the road layout improvements between Salterhebble and Calderdale Royal Hospital.
